Thankful for Thorns (blog) Facebook Fan Giveaway Celebration!!


No matter if you’re a blogger, mom, small business owner, or
are just someone who jots down notes (and like me loses them) you will love
this planner! First off: Hello Fun Colors! I love the colors that Tiffany used throughout
this planner. It’s cheery and honestly makes me enjoy writing down our
schedules in it.

I’m notorious for forgetting to write things down or not feeling like it and
just trying to remember everything in my head. Well, guess what, that isn’t
working so well anymore.  I recently
forgot several commitments I made to people and feel HORRIBLE about it.

This planner has 132 pages.

There is a full month calendar at the beginning of each scheduling period.

Underneath every calendar page has an important notes spot. I personally use
this section in EVERY month.

There also are sometimes dreams and goals, jot it down, or just empty boxes for
you to fill in whatever you need to.

Then within that month you have five pages with four rectangles.
These pages work perfect for blocking out your daily schedule, client sessions,
or whatever you need it to do for you.

They run March-February and honestly I just really love this

One of my other favorite features throughout the planner is some of the months
have a little “Goals & Dreams” spot under the main calendar. You have a
perfect little spot to write out some of your dreams and goals for the month
and then there are boxes to check them off when you complete them! Love it!

Without farther ado I am now giving away THREE planners! A $50
value for three lucky people! And if you don’t win one but you want to get one
of your own you can go HERE. And use the code OTSS15 to get 15% off of your

Just a few details: The planner prizes were purchased and will be fulfilled by me (Jessica @ Thankful For Thorns). The $100 gift card is being provided by On The Spot Studio. Although this did end up to be a review of this product
all of the opinions are my own and I did not receive anything to do this review. Sadly its wicked expensive for me to ship this to Canada so I am only opening this to the US :(

Wool.....What is it good for?

Absolutely nothing!  Say it again!  WRONG!!!  But for some reason the War song popped into my head and I had to finish my version of the song :)  Wool is absolutely wonderful!!  But it can also be extremely intimidating and scary if you have never used it before.  It was well over a year into my cloth diapering adventures before I even thought about attempting wool.  And all I have to say is I am sad and sorry that I did not try it sooner!!!

It is not nearly as horrible as I thought it would be to deal with.  But when someone tells you that you have to hand wash it, don't put it in the dryer, and use lanolin on it, that would make most people run for the hills :)  And that is exactly what I did for over a year.  You really don't "wash" it you more let it soak :)  and then roll it up to get the excess water out.  But you can read more one washing here (coming soon)!

So I guess the real question is why wool?  What is so awesome about it?  And why do I not wash it between every use?  Yuck!!!
